    Lianne La Havas Nominated for Best Album at The Ivors

    Congratulations to Lianne La Havas, whose 2020 self-titled album has been nominated for Best Album at the Ivor Novello Awards. The Ivors celebrate creative excellence by British and Irish songwriters and screen composers. The 66th awards presentation will take place on Tuesday, September 21, from 11:30am BST at Grosvenor House, London.

    Lianne La Havas spans the arc of a relationship. Its musical references are as varied as Milton Nascimento, Joni Mitchell, Jaco Pastorious, Al Green, and Destiny’s Child. In keeping with the album's intimate feel, everyone who contributed is a trusted collaborator, including longtime songwriting ally Matt Hales, co-producer Beni Giles, and guest co-producer Mura Masa. "The songs on this album, La Havas's third and perhaps best, reveal how her sophisticated artistry is made of not just brilliantly crafted lyrics," says NPR Music, "but a rich musicality, full with gorgeous harmonic voicings, catchy rhythms and soulful melodies."
